Manchester United's winning streak might have come to an end last week with a 1-1 draw against Swansea City, but the Red Devils still sit four points clear of second-place Manchester City heading into the halfway point of the 2012/13 season.
Sir Alex Ferguson's men will take on Newcastle United at Old Trafford this week as they look to bounce back with a renewed performance in front of their home fans.
The Magpies have been inconsistent and generally poor this season—nowhere near the devastating form they showed last year—and are lagging in 14th position because of it.
They were easily beaten 3-0 when they played United earlier in the year, and now, away from home with a growing injury list, could be in for another long night at the Theater of Dreams.
Having said that, when Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse get hot, there's really no telling just what this side is capable of, and they can't be discounted in this one either.
